About Georgia Death Certificates



The State of Georgia did not maintain death certificates until 1919. However, many old newspapers did, and these events were thoroughly mixed and scattered throughout each day's paper. Some of these death inscriptions were discovered during the 1960's in old court houses, newspaper offices and libraries and were extracted by Jeannette Holland Austin. Most of them did not survive. That makes this extraction a valuable resource.
